Welcome to Australia Joe
Sorry hearing about the Jetstar ordeal, bad airline.
I hope you are not flying them again from Brisbane to Perth thats another 5 or so hours.
Internationally in this region only fly Thai Airways, best food, inflight service & best booze
and beauty queens! Love the Thais. *sigh* A story for a laugh:
Right after first son was born (who is now 22 and back at home. help me Jesus.) I took the DivineOne to my favorite Thai Restaurant down in the south end where worked a sultry exotic beauty, with whom I was completely enamored. She was lovely and liked me, but father & brothers gave me the iron face. I spent money and always ate well, so they were professional.
Anyway, we walked in and MsBangcockLove lit up, took the baby out of mommy's arms, and disappeared into the kitchen. MsTia freaked. She figured out right quick, big daddy has been here before. Dao reappeared with child seat and put us in this hidden circular booth. You know the table where the kingpins hold court...
Ten minutes Papa Joe was there complimenting the Mrs. on beautiful child, and I was a good guy and so on n so forth. Brother Large shoved flunky aside and waited on us himself. It was a good night.
I got the feeling there was some relief there, that I was not a complete rogue trying to play their star.
Yeah go Thai.
Rock On & Keep the FAITH
